They'll be part of the main pages for those artists. It's just that WAY more Europe Series (Doug) and Korean Series (Mike) are sold than the USA models.

BTW... how did you like the new site?
That makes sense. I guess the price difference is HUGE on the US vs Euro/Kor models.

The new site's nice. Feels quicker. I like the link to the discontinued models.
My work PC still seems to have issues with mixing the old content with the new, regardless of how many times I've cleared my cache, temp files, history, etc.
I did notice that the NS-2000/5 is still listed as a 34" scale, though, and that it has a flat body with pearl dot inlays. Mine is most definitely 35" scale & contoured with what appear to be either pearl or plastic dot inlays.
There's also no info on the Q series. Is that coming? I'd love to know the differences.

Got to try out the Brooklyn at full throttle today and compare it to the Kramer’s. The Brooklyn was slightly lighter than the Kramer’s and has the original drop tuner pretty cool. I would say the tone is almost identical to the blue figured maple that Jeff had (the double boxed bass). Which is pretty &*%*ing unbelievable. Only difference was the Brooklyn was a little brighter due to the .95 vs. the .123 on the Kramer era. The neck on the Brooklyn was just slightly thicker than the figured maple Kramer era not much at all (so Jeff would not want it) and the Flamed maple is a bit thicker than both. The Brooklyn has been played quite a bit. The Schaller post mounted on the front horn is worn completely thru The blue flamed maple Kramer era, has a new 9v in it and all I can say is that they don't make them like they used to. That was the first to come and when I played it I thought "Nothing could beat this" well.... I was wrong twice. These will be passed down to my son for sure. I really hope to get some time to record these comparisons and the modded Rebop 5 soon. Gonna head up and pay a visit to MrBassie at the end of the month for a refinish on the figured maple Kramer era..

So your first Kramer era Spector with the newer 9volt will be on the chopping block soon right? Lol. Not that I want to buy it but I bet someone in the club will want it.....I enjoyed playing it though! Congrats Mike on a great find......when you come through, let me know and maybe we can all meet up at Casa de Husky123!

tomorrow is the big Album release show! I'm super excited! I'd say the best part is that our very Joe (mrbassie) is coming out.

Congrats Donny - that's a big day indeed!

BTW, I think my wife may be a Defy Tolerance groupie - your album has been in our home stereo for several weeks now, and my she cranks it up every morning while we're eating breakfast.

She keeps asking when you guys will be playing Denver...

I still like it but, that one and the plum with the TP are the least that get played. The plum has the jazz neck and is easy on my wrist for certain riffs. The new 9v's are nice but the old circuits sound better to me. I guess as tech evolves and suppliers change so do the components. Live and practice the matte with the BQC it will cop any tone just about, and recording is the Kramer and Brooklyn. I'm still one to get very attached to my gear and have a hard time letting anything go. I sent one of my 400+'s out today and I'm still crying. I'm a vintage junkie. We'll work out the meeting. I'm gonna head up the weekend that we get off for MLK jr day so I can recoup on that Monday.

Sounds Excellent!!!!...I hope that don't change the sound...The "double boxed" bass has probably the best sound I have heard come from a Spector.

Kinda funny on the prices these people are giving, we only wish they could be that inexpensive.
I about rolled on the floor laughing when each contestant said their bid! Lol Not a clue...

Donny...I listened to your bands CD this morning on my home stereo and I think it's awesome!!! The Ball and Chain song is my fav. Knock them dead tomorrow in your CD party! Wish I could be there.
